March 18, 2021 -- In recognition of World Oral Health Day on March 20, Delta Dental has published a survey that shows Americans are focused on their oral health and recognize its integral role in their overall health, even during the COVID-19 pandemic

The survey was conducted between December 28, 2020, and January 8, 2021, among a nationally representative sample of more than 1,000 U.S. adults. The findings showed 90% of Americans believe that maintaining oral health is essential to protecting their overall health during the pandemic.

Additionally, 72% of Americans are paying closer attention to their oral care habits at home as a result of COVID-19. Furthermore, 93% of Americans plan to visit the dentist in 2021, the survey found.

"With nearly all Americans reporting that they plan to visit the dentist in 2021 and high levels of commitment to oral health habits at home, we are optimistic this will contribute to a positive shift toward improved overall health across the country," stated James Hutchison, president and CEO of Delta Dental, in a press release.
